What does it mean to be too high to drive?

This November, an additional four states decriminalized the recreational use of marijuana. Numerous more states allow marijuana to be prescribed medicinally, including New York. As states increasingly treat marijuana similarly to alcohol, the question follows: what does it mean to be too high to drive?

Man charged with drunk driving

On Nov. 8, it was reported that a New York man was taken into police custody on Oct. 30 after he was accused of driving while under the influence of alcohol. Authorities stated that the 31-year-old man was seen driving across multiple lanes and across the center median.

Legal marijuana poses questions for state governments

New York residents may know that on Nov. 8, voters in a few states approved ballot initiatives that would make the possession of small amounts of marijuana legal. As marijuana laws are loosened throughout the country, it has given rise to new legal questions that may have an impact on drivers. A study conducted by Automobile Association of America's Foundation for Traffic Safety found fatal crashes involving drivers using marijuana doubled after Washington legalized the substance.

New app could help lower drunk driving arrests

Recently, an alumnus of Montana State University won first place in a national entrepreneurship pitch competition, which was held in Boston, Massachusetts as a part of the Forbes Under 30 Summit. He won top prize in the competition with a mobile app he developed to help reduce the prevalence of drunken driving in our society. For winning first place, Alex Crosby received $15,000, which he plans to use to accelerate the progress of his fundraising for the mobile app.

A mother of three in New York was charged with vehicular manslaughter after allegedly causing a fatal collision on Oct. 28. Police say that the woman's blood-alcohol level was four times the legal limit when she was involved in a head-on collision that killed an elderly couple in Westchester County.
